[With apologies in advance for the slightly advertising-y nature of this post….]

Georgia is a friend of mine and a “consciousness coach and relaxation specialist.” She practices something called “Access Consciousness,” a form of bodywork with which I wasn’t previously familiar. This is from the Access Consciousness web site:

… there are 32 points on your head which, when gently touched, effortlessly and easily release anything that doesn’t allow you to receive? These points contain all the thoughts, ideas, beliefs, emotions, and considerations you have stored in any lifetime. This is an opportunity for you to let go of everything!

Each Bars session can release 5-10 thousand years of limitations in the area of your life that corresponds with the specific Bar being touched. This is an incredibly nurturing and relaxing process, undoing limitation in all aspects of your life that you are willing to change!

How much of your life do you spend doing rather than receiving? Have you noticed that your life is not yet what you would like it to be? You could have everything you desire (and then some!) if you are willing to receive lots more and maybe do a little less! Receiving or learning The Bars will allow this and so much more to show up for you!

The Bars has assisted thousands of people change many aspects of their body and their life including sleep, health and weight, money, sex and relationships, anxiety, stress and so much more! At worst you will feel like you have just had the best massage of your life. At best your whole life can change into something greater with total ease.

Now.

I have to say. This is not generally my thing. But I really enjoyed Georgia’s laying-on-of-hands.

I’ve been known to appreciate a good massage (and yes, I’m talking about legitimate massages, and not just “happy endings”). I actually have, for about six months, been getting a weekly form of bodywork called the “Rosen Method.” I can’t really say too much about it, except to analogize it to psychoanalysis for the body. My sense is that it’s an interesting modality, but, unfortunately, one typically practiced by bodyworker types rather than by psychoanalysts. I think that the nature of this particular modality, at least as I understand it, is that it would work better practiced by a person practiced not just in bodily empathy, but also in intellectual and emotional empathy. That said, I’ve done it for about six months, and don’t have any plans to stop.

But in general, I’m a skeptic of almost every bodywork modality, and the less explicitly intellectual its description, the less receptive I am. (I have a good friend who’s an acupuncturist, and I joke with him that acupuncture doesn’t work on me because I don’t believe in it.)

The language of the Access Consciousness web site is, honestly, a turn-off to me.

But back to Georgia.

She persuaded me to try one treatment, and I did. It was pretty awesome. I can’t vouch for the claims made on the Access Consciousness web site, but the treatment was phenomenally relaxing, and at the end, Georgia offered some observations about my body and the information it contains that felt pretty spot-on to me.

A brief description: I lay on her massage table, fully clothed, and she stood behind me, cradling my head gently in her hands. After about three to five minutes of this, she moved and held my hands gently, not moving, for a similar period of time. And then, she did the same with my feet. After she released my feet, she moved back to my head, and, for the next hour or so, she very tenderly moved from one spot to another on my head, lingering at each for a period of time that I would guess ranged from one to seven or eight minutes. Throughout, I closed my eyes and meditated.

I’m a sucker for a long meditation session: there’s little I find more therapeutic in life than meditating for a really long period of time, and of late, I’ve not been able to organize myself to meditate for more than my usual twenty minutes a morning after waking. So having the chance to close my eyes, and watch my breath, and the distractions from my breath in the form of thoughts, was a great luxury, and one for which I was enormously grateful. Paired with her soft, gentle touch, and the accepting, warm sensations it provided, I finished the session feeling totally relaxed and rejuvenated.

I don’t know if my “whole life… change[d] into something greater with total ease,” but I liked the treatment, and I’ll definitely do it again.

And, for what it’s worth, Georgia does a bunch of other stuff. She does both in-person and phone work with women on sex and receiving. If you’re interested, check her out.

  One Response to “Access Consciousness”

  1. I’m a firm believer that if it works for you, then it’s worth it. I’m also a firm believer in acupuncture. The couple I saw trained in China(and were from there) and all I can say is I felt fantastic afterwards. I’ve always combined eastern and western medicine(of course more so when we lived in Singapore) Chinese medicine has been able to do things that western medicine can’t even touch.
    And it’s nice to hear/read other aspects of your life unrelated to sex.

Say something! (I just did....)
